Employee engagement and internal communications are hot topics in the corporate world these days.
Businesses everywhere are searching for ways to better engage their employees, and improving internal communications is a crucial component in achieving that goal.
It is clear that most of the customers in 2018 expect video as a media of communication, but many organizations still don’t see the potential of video internally. Why?
Being nervous in front of the camera
People’s fear to stand in front of the camera is, for sure, one of the main obstacles to the success of video communication internally.
How many times have you watched a video of yourself talking, and asked yourself: “Do I really sound like this?”. Well, while younger generations are just born with it, being camera nervous is a fear most of the generations before generation Z need to deal with.
Practice makes perfect! After a few times, you press “record” and “play” on your video, the fear will vanish. The video is barely different from an in-person conversation. The only difference is that you get the extra opportunity to think before you speak.
The video is for sure the internal tool of the future that will boost employees engagement.
Here is why you should make it your internal tool of today:
- Video saves you time.
- With video, you can easily share your feelings and motivate your team for better results.
- Learning with video is easy. Screen sharing options give you the ability to demonstrate a more complex task.
- There are no space and time boundaries like in real meetings.
- Video engages your recipient better than the text.
After reading all this, is there any reason why you shouldn’t try the power of video internally? Put a smile, press record and make your first internal video for your colleagues instead of typing and see for yourself.
